Here's what I'm looking at for imodium:
Even at my higher than usual dose this will last me around 3 years. 280 dollars. If that doesn't fly I'll just take a trip into Mexico once a year and pick up my life essential medications. In my old age I'm getting tired of being ripped off by US Pharma and insurance companies. There are too many people getting paid that add no value in our medical system.
Thanks for the discussion all and I'm sorry if I ruffled feathers. It's at least in part my torrette syndrome and slew of personality disorders. LOL. I've found a couple workarounds which solves my immediate need. I'd still like to be able to affect making it accessible to all of us again. It doesn't make a ton of sense to limit the supply of an essential medicine. WHO said it was the 256th most prescribed medicine. Very important for us and cute little old ladies with incontinence.
Nobody talks about that part. Women give birth to children and in their golden years, those sphincter tears catch up to them. It's embarrassing for anyone to have to beg for imodium.
Life is hard and simultaneously wonderful, eh?
